with the town hall format because this is a very different kind of environment, and, you know, i think this is where romney is going to have to connect and feel people's pain and so that's naturally something that obama does well. we'll see how well romney adapts to that environment. >> i'm hoping candy crowley gets more in there. she's much more political than jim lehrer. she'll say follow up on that, answer it. >> i think she will. she will be aware of all the critique of jim lehrer that's gone on. i think mark raises a very, very good point as he so often does. the format for the next debate is a format that favors somebody who is more comfortable with people and who is a little more easy. >> can you fake it? >> well, you know, i think this is a form that -- >> can you fake it? >> i think you can fake it a little bit but not very much. i'm not sure mitt romney is going to be able to fake it. i think the president that we saw in denver the day after the debate is the president that we're likely to see in the town hall meeting coming up next time and you're going to see joe biden unle

are the possibilities? >> reporter: scott, that medication is supposed to be prepared in a sterile environment but if there's a breakdown in the system there could be contamination in the fungus. it's common in soil, decomposing leaves and even floating in the air. >> pelley: if the fungus is everywhere, as you describe it, why is it so dangerous in this case? >> reporter: in somebody with a normal immune system the lungs filter it out. ouen you inject it directly into the spine, that's like a straight highway to the brain. >> pelley: jon, thank you very ver. it has been more than three weeks since that deadly terrorist attack on the u.s. s.nsulate in benghazi, libya. today, the libyan government finally allowed a team of f.b.i. agents to see the crime scene. four americans were killed in that attack, of course, including ambassador chris stephens. the agents, with a u.s. military escort, spent 12 hours at the consulate, though much of the evidence has already been compromised there. the violence in syria's civil war is spilling over its borders. for a second day, turkey fired artillery shells
't be so easy in a town hall environment, the president will probably overreact. he was angry today, he called romney a liar, petulant. he is arrogant. he has never taken a punch. he is used to hail to the chief and i'm great, etsetra. i think, it wasn't just style, it was substance. it was a deep, deep knowledge that he showed on the economy, on the deb, on the deficit, on health care. every issue that came up. and obama stammering, stambling, without that teleprompter, this guy is lost. this is a myth that was shattered last night. he was reduced in 90 minutes, before the american people, i felt. >> yeah. that's because romney had a clarity of purpose, a clarity of mind, a clarity of principles that we know that obama has lacked for a long, long time. i think that going forward now, there is now an extra burden on these liberal journalists to do-- >>> not going to happen. >> a lot of the left thought that jame lehrer failed at. i think that's what romney and ryan vato brace for. there will be a town hall format. from my recollection of covering the last several election cycles, where

provide the permitting under broad standards set by the federal government. that protects the environment and we produce more energy, domestic energy an jobs from this country. melissa: can you tell me physically what takes the process so much longer? is it your filling out pieces of paper you send them in and don't hear back forever? what in the permitting process takes gap 10 days, couple days in one situation and 290 days in the other? what is it? >> melissa, frankly it is federal bureaucracy. it is red tape. it is epa. bureau land management. what they're doing, they have got a very lengthy, extensive and uncertain permitting process that ties up industry for no real benefit that means less domestic oil, less domestic energy and fewer jobs. melissa: so what's the answer? is it no permits at all? is there a way to expedite the process? do you do the permits locally? what's the answer? >> well, that's, i appreciate you asking that question. that's my point. here in the state of north dakota we're a good example. on private lands we get the wells permitted in 10 days. with the legislatio

of people in the low interest rate environment, investors are looking and buying up a lot of these homes, looking at that as a way to get yield in here. so not only is it helping stock, it's helping the housing market and that's that wealth effect people are talking about. these are the two areas bernanke knows are vital to how people feel and the confidence factor. >> but this is cart before the horse economics. the stock market is supposed to go up because the economy is going up. and when you push the stock market up artificially and hope the economy will come behind it, i think that's very dangerous. i'm very uncomfortable where that. i liked the stock market more before i saw the fed in there as a cheerleader. when the fed's doing something you kind of have to look at the other side of risk and now i'm getting worried that the fed is doing this. >> you could careless why it's going up. >> from a valuation standpoint, we're certainly getting ac litte stretched. 14 1450 was our number and we're essentially there. you look at the economy, housing is certainly working. autos is search w

didn't wait for washington nor international treaty and environment or anything like this. we just moved forward. i remember washington was never that enthusiastic about infrastructure. you know how much we are falling behind in infrastructure nationwide compared to the rest of the world. but we in california we said yes to infrastructure. and now we can see construction in schools and roads and affordable housing and other projects all over the state of california. washington said no to stem cell research. imagine, we said yes. and we invested $3 billion. as a matter of fact, right here at u.s.c. we have one of the great centers for staple-cell research, and they are drawing money for those $3 billion for their center. washington said no to our landmark climb change law. million solar roofs, list goes on and on. we said yes, yes and yes. and we moved forward. some of the most powerful solutions come from local government and also grass roots. people power. not from washington or paris or moscow or beijing. finally, i learned quickly that a post partisan way of governing is the mos

and once that began, i don't know whether he could change that environment what i was frustrated is failure to use the synapse to pop out and sitting here talking you and ji jim lehr about the pbs funding which is okay and cute and fun to talk about, how about the auto industry, i rescued it and you would let it go bankrupt. >> i am if for equal pay of women, he didn't bring up things and let romney get by with some really distracting and really unclear, in fact, untrue statements about healthcare where he said i am for coverage for preexisting conditions, his people later on said he wasn't and he said, in fact, before that he never was really for covering preexisting conditions unless, you know, it is paid for, ahead of time during, you know, continuing coverage, and a couple of times in the last week he said things like well if you get sick we won't let you die in your apartment and get you to er and yet came on last night talking about a national health plan he had which he really doesn't have. i thought he got away with a lot of things showing sympathy for social security recipients whe
to be less destructive to the environment or whatever. so that's the argument you'll hear from the romney folks, from those who support that part of the energy industry. i do think that as he gets closer and closer and if you take a look at the thrust of what he was saying in the debate and the argument he's been flip-flopping, etch-a-sketch moment, he's gone from appealing to the far right to appealing now to the independents, and the center, that certainly did come through, but it is by no means unusual. republicans in seeking the nomination always run to the right. when they get it, they run to the center. democrats often do exactly the same thing, seeking the nomination, they run to the left. they get it and move to the center. that's -- i've been covering politics for a long time. i'm not surprised by any of this. they want to get elected. they're politicians. that's what they do. >> i got to wrap it there. smack out of time. that clean coal scene, there is a big conversation to be held there. wolf blitzer as always, my great thanks to you. i want to invite you to go to wolf's progra
to adjust to a slower growth environment. we've seen much lower inventory levels. we've seen underinvest inspemen capital, which is creating a bit of tail wind going into next year. interestingly enough, asia is in the same state. what is worrisome is companies haven't adjusted to the possibility of slower growth next year. >> peter, what are you looking for next week? what should we be watching for? >> i think the next three weeks is solely earnings. for two months we've had central banks putting goggles on our eyes. now the fundamentals can't be ignored anymore. they're out from under the rug. we get to hear what the guidance is going forward. >> so peter, on tuesday we're going to see angela merkel in greece. there's going to be horrendous protests, tear gas. we can just imagine. yet, we're going to be able to look through that and focus on the domestic earnings front here? >> the greek stock market was up 12% this week. the bond that's maturing at 11 years is at a high. i think everyone's beginning to it realize that greece is going to be given some slack because there's no other cho
they come back to their home district. how would you bring back dollars to new jersey in this environment and what would you identify as the most pressing new jersey project in need of federal funding? kyrillos: well unfortunately, these guys abuse the earmark process. they were excessive. and of course now we are at a point with their debt problem that we can't afford them. so i'm going to fight tooth and nail for every project that can come back home within the confines of formulae and other plans that exist for people to compete for. and i'm going to be very active and visible all around the state. we lost a big army bait in monmouth county. they didn't just employ people in monmouth county but people all around new jersey. senator i'm not sure where you were in that fight. i didn't see it. and of course we lost those jobs and we lost that base and the move to aberdeen maryland at a sky-high price tag to the american taxpayer. and so the existing army base, the megabass that is what we have to work for. >> moderator: thank you sir. senator menendez? menendez: can i go a little over? >>
